WASHINGTON, (UPI) — The White House released an April Fools’ Day “special message” Monday from a 9-year-old known as the “kid president.”

The White House posted to its Twitter account Monday, saying “This morning, the White House released a special video message from the President,” but the video in question instead starred Robbie Novak, a 9-year-old self-described “kid president” whose motivational YouTube videos made him a viral star this year, CNN reported.

“It’s looks look like you were expecting somebody else. April Fools on all y’all,” Novak says after stepping up to the mikes in the video.

“I’m the kid president, and I hope everyone has an awesome day,” he says. “It’s everyone’s dream to give the world a reason to dance.”

The White House said Novak would be a guest Monday at the White House Easter Egg Roll.
